Serene in Suspense
at Deitch Projects, 78 Grand St. Jan 7-Feb 13 '99

Relaxed and afloat, the figure is balanced and suspended by a fine line from her navel connected to a pole near the ceiling. Reportedly, a strong magnet in her head aligns with Earth's magnetic field causing the figure's sex to face south, where the Sun is, in the manner of a compass. At this moment, however, she was found with feet facing East, a blatant and outright act of electromagnet independence.
